SERVING THE STATE OF GEORGIA
Many factors may contribute to a car accident. The key to making a strong and compelling personal injury claim is to prove how other parties were negligent. As an example, two cars are driving side by side and the driver to the right suddenly swerves into the other driver's lane, sideswiping him. It is clear that this driver is at-fault for the accident.
On the other hand, the driver on the lift side may also be somewhat at fault if he or she was speeding or committing some other traffic violation. Whatever the case may be, if you were injured, it is critical that you obtain legal representation from Atlanta car accident attorneys.
How Is Fault Determined?
Georgia is a fault-based state, which means that if another driver caused your car collision, then they would be responsible for paying compensation for the injuries and other damages caused. Most of the time, you would be negotiating with the driver's insurance company, rather than the driver. The insurance company would also be responsible for providing the monetary payout.
In evaluating an injury claim, there are several elements that must be determined:
- Duty—All drivers must ensure safety to other drivers when taking to the road.
- Breach—The other driver was negligent and breached that duty.
- Causation—The other driver's action were what led to the incident and injuries.
- Damages—You suffered injuries as a result.
